The Impossible; Part 5. Existence and the Story of Death to Life.

Whew! Those Impossible essays really get thick. So perhaps a rejoining to a more approachable speaking. But hold on! The ride is just getting fun. I have been interacting through comments and replies with Dave, who writes the blog called "Big Story Guide". Our conversation is quite wonderful, so, just as I used our conversation… Continue reading The Impossible; Part 5. Existence and the Story of Death to Life.

It is not at all an over generalization or stereotype to say that most people could not care less about philosophical-theoretical discussion unless ot has to do with their career.
